Best way I have found to back up quickbooks is to get a thumb drive (flash drive) and back up to that. Its easy a small device, rewritable and you can port your QB backup to any computer with a USB slot.

    PS: Rember that you need to get a drive big enough to hold your current size backup and large enough for your backup size to continue to grow. 2Gig should be enough unless you have 100's of years worth of QB data LOL

You cannot use a SATA (serial ATA HDD in this machine. You need a PATA (parallel ATA) HDD, also known as IDE, ULTRA IDE, ULTRA ATA. This has a 40-pin ribbon connector & a 4-pin power connector.
Sizes generally available would be 80GB up to 250GB, although very few PATA drives are now sold since SATA is the new standard.

FixYa is not affiliated with Gateway. You need to contact Gateway or your laptop supplier for instructions on the warranty claim.

Since Philips has sold their name and US product lines to the junk dealer Funai, it might be available under their name now.
You could also purchase an external drive to expand your possibilities; they are on eBay for ~ $50 US.

The camera on my laptop, model MT616 does not work anymore. If I click on the camera button it does nothing. It was purchased 12/11/2007 so I hope it's under warranty. Connie...


Get ahold of Gateway **NOW**, in case your warranty is about to run out.

They may be able to help you. Live support online has been rather helpful for me, and the wait times haven't been too bad. If that doesn't get you anywhere ...

I can't find your laptop in Gateway's database. Try poking around here, either with your serial number (this page) or by clicking the "Browse all downloads" tab and typing in your model number, which may be missing a number.
If you're browsing, hit "Display results" at the bottom before you enter anything in for question 4.

There should be some Webcam software, including a newer version of the drivers and a firmware update- - which will actually make the camera itself work differently.

Also look to see if there's any software from Gateway itself. Sometimes manufacturers build their own software to set up one button to enter a power management screen, one button to enter a setup screen, one button to open e-mail, etc. There may be similar controlling software for your camera.
